The build no longer works with git master. It only has but is lacking a ./configure script!

Hmm... It seems like the pdf or cairo terminal is not working. I do see pango and cairo as a dependency.

@seirios: Oh thank you. I would like it if the package don't have emacs and texlive-core dependency. I do need pango in order to have pdf terminal. Would using commit 2ebba0a solve the issue?

@redshoe: Indeed, with the latest PKGBUILD it fails as in your case. However, with the previous PKBUILD (commit 2ebba0a) on which I commented, it was possible to build without texlive-core and emacs. Commit 2ad43cf really made texlive-core necessary (due to --with-kpsexpand at config time) and also emacs (due to make install-info).

@thrasibule: The latest two commits are incompatible. The alternatives are to either add emacs back as a makedep, or roll-back to 2ebba0a, add pango as dep, and remove both emacs and texlive-core as makedeps (which makes this package way simpler).

As far as I can tell, emacs is required for generating the texinfo file, due to use of doc2texi.el. But, what is texlive-core necessary for?

@seirios: I am having build issue saying that it requires emacs. How did you build the package without it?

Seems like pango has to be added as a dependency for cairo terminals to work. Also, I fail to see why emacs and texlive are makedeps. I have succesfully built this package without them.

redshoe commented on 2019-08-09 13:29 (UTC)

Does this support pdfcairo?

pdf terminal disappeared after an update.

Had to remove the "--without-x" configure switch and rebuild. No "x11" terminal is available otherwise...

Renamed gnuplot-notk to gnuplot-nogui.

Ambrevar commented on 2015-09-09 15:35 (UTC)

I am disowning the package as I am using other tools instead (such as Asymptote).
